Condolences

Dear Miss Dee, Tracy and Sandy, I was so saddened to hear of Mr. Ronnie’s untimely passing. I will always remember him as such a gentle, funny and present Dad and husband. He and Miss Dee were always cutting up, and I’m sure that was the basis of your wonderful and long-lasting marriage. I know the pain of losing him is so sharp right now, but please know it will ease with time and God’s grace. Always keeping you in my prayers and thoughts and so happy that he is in Heaven, still watching and loving all of you. Love, Melissa Montealegre Egan and family

I knew Ron as Ronnie growing up. I am Anna’s daughter Ann. It has been a very long time ago since I have seen any of the family. I want to give my condolences to his family and pray that God gives you all peace and comfort in this sad time. If Alzheimer’s took him as it did my mom, I’m sure Ron is now in blessded comfort.

Ron and I were friends working together at L.S.U foot ball games. He as a Hamm radio operator who supported us in the medical stations. Then to find out he was married to Dee, who I attended high school with. We have lost a wonderful person. God now has His own Hamm operator .
